years, barack obama suddenly walked out on the stage and said, oh, my gosh, i'm black, i can't take on this white guy. look, whether in sports, music, acting or politics, some days you just don't have a the juice, but we squeezed out what we could from the debate and i'll offer my humble, but absolutely accurate assessment of the event. first of all, here is mitt romney countering what the obama campaign is saying about his tax proposal. >> i've got five boys, i'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. >> let me just say this was a brilliant rhetorical device on the part of mitt romney for a couple of reasons, first of all, by invoking the story of his sons, it really brought a sense of connection to mitt romney as a father. he's raised kids. he is more like us at least in that regard. countering one of the great criticisms of mitt romney that he doesn't understand the rest of people. that showed a connection. the fact that his boys had told him, let's just say funny business like everybody does to thei

policy. >> you realize this year's worse than last year, right? >> i know you're an obama insider. >> no, i'm an outsider. >> does president obama understand the federal reserve? the reason i ask is does he know what bernanke's doing? the reason i ask this is that most people only recognize a third to a half of the intelligence reports. >> he's too good for that. most people have reported that he's only gotten and he got it online through his ipad. do you think he understands, do you really think he understands what's going on in the federal reserve? >> i do. any about the operations of the white house, if i get a little kind of in the weeds with you guys here. >> not too much. >> they have a council of economic advisors, they've got the domestic policy council. is obama really going to be able to articulate a defense on fiscal policy. i haven't heard him give any speech where he seems to be in the weeds on this. >> i thought he was a tough campaign strategist. >> now, look, if he takes my advice, which he won't do. i would talk about the following. i have a bill that all kinds of econom

. >> there's a reason president obama struggled tonight. he struggled the last four years. you can't make a great defense of a record that's not been great. you can't communicate well things you have not delivered well. president obama has not had the four years he wanted to have. he had to talk about it and defend it tonight. he simply -- neil: what do you make, congressman, the argument, that the president is the champ; right? he survived without getting knocked down or knocked out certainly, the default goes to the champ. the champ regimely gets the decision. >> well, i don't know. i saw moments where it looked like he was on the canvas. when mitt romney was coming barks, and point by point saying, yes, you cut medicare -- neil: the five trillion, did you, you did not -- >> here's why it register. anyone on medicare knows the government does not give you a direct amount of money. the government reimburses the doctors. if the government cuts the money that reimburses your doctors, that's how the government cuts medicare. few understand that. neil: at the very least, you think mitt romne

horrible year which you can't blame president obama for in totality his first year that he inherited this big mess. now it's down to 7.8%. doesn't that show that he is on the right trajectory and kind of undermining the central argument for you? >> oh, i don't think so. you know, it's like this, candy. if you are getting blown out in a football game but you are scoring field goals once a quarter, you can't point to the three points every quarter and say at least we're scoring some points. we're still getting clobbered. the fact of the matter is the president and joe biden are getting clobbered on policies they put in place. promised we'd be a heck of a lot better off than today, we're nowhere close. i was in wisconsin yesterday. been in ohio practically every other day. i'll tell you what, people in kenosha, wisconsin, and ohio don't feel better off today than they were four years ago, and they don't think this president has been very good at following through on his promises. that's what this is going to come down to, and i'll tell you what, last week you saw the difference. an unfi

has spent the last four years in a bubble with an adoring media. but i also know that barack obama is a very excellent debater. he knows -- he will be going over the mistakes that he made and i think that he hrs is going to be much better and much better prepared in the next debate. this was really important. i saw where i think 67 million people watched. and one of the most important things about this, gret awas that they have spent -- the obama campaign has spent hundreds of millions of dollars portraying mitt romney as a bain capital capitalist, driving the unfavorables up, especially in the swing states and mitt romney, last night, came across as a person of capability, of vision and who knows what is best for america. i think that was really the most important part of that whole debate. >> greta: what do you think happened to president obama? historically, he has given speeches that have been dazzling. he has been very successful on the campaign trail. i don't need to tell but that. what happened last night? >> i think he spent four years in a bubble with an adoring media. mea

. the jobless rate has been about 8% for more than three years. but president obama is getting a well timed bump care of the labor department. bystanders showing more jobs have now been created and lost since the president took office. does this hurt mitt romney's argument? let's ask former republican governor mike huckabee of arkansas. it is wonderful to have you. >> great to be here. lori: what do you think of this jobs revision? it seems to be a nice boost for obama. >> if he is looking for anything, this is the lifeline he has. the fact is, of the jobs that have been created are jobs that are being created at a much lower pay scale than the jobs that people lost. some 30% lower. the fact that people have got a job does not necessarily mean they're better off. the key thing is that median household income is down by more than $3,000. that is the real issue. lori: median incomes, talking about flat line, that is one of the crises of the jobs problem in this country that has been a reported. and let you mention it. tell me what you think the response should be. so far it has been just to tap th

the unemployment rate below 8% for the first time in nearly four years. the news is good for job- seekers, but also for president obama, who is trying to maintain his lead in the bulls after a week debate. >> september's unemployment rate delivered president obama a pre-election gift. this is the first time it has been below 8% during his presidency. >> we know there is still that willingness for all of us to see that more people are put but to work. in this particular report, i am happy to see that we have continued growth. >> employers added 114,000 jobs in september. the numbers shocked analysts, who predicted the jobless rate would stay around 8% and possibly grow. >> this is a big report. >> president obama called the report proved that the economy is improving under his policies. >> we have made too much product progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. >> mitt romney launched a tv ad that the recovery is too slow. even economists seem hesitant, pointing of the the number of new jobs created each month has been decreasing since july. this report a positive
looked so much better in comparison. for mr. obama, unemployment peaked in 2009 at 10%, now three years later it's 7.8%. for both presidents, unemployment generally trended down all the way to election day. as you might expect, president obama and governor romney saw these numbers quite differently and we have two reports tonight. first, nancy cordes covering the president and she's in cleveland. nancy? ncy?eporter: scott, you could practically see the relief on the president's face today and not just because this news helped to change the subject from his shaky debate performance. negh unemployment has been an albatross around his neck the past four years. today he mentioned the drop not once but twice starting in virginia. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office.

are paid obama campaign advisers. they haven't been acting that way over the past three years, that's for sure. these are economists who look at numbers, who look at them again, who revised them until you have a final reading. because the labor market has been in such distres really over the past four years, we've seen a lot of different revisions and weird movements because usually it's a dynamic and growing labor market that's pretty easy to read. it goeses up. when it goes down, you know exactly why. to throw politics in it is just silly. it's just silly, carol. >> it's disturbing because, you know, we can't be happy with any tiny little bright note in the economy. we all have to like wonder if it's true or -- and that doesn't help things either. for the economy to recover it's psycholo psychological in part, right? to run around saying the numbers are wrong, they're lying about the numbers. the economy is really, really, really bad, it's just like --i don't know. it doesn't help. >> it's frustrating. what's frustrating about it, there's so much data out there. and we know that t

facts have been. that was never said in obama's autobiography. it was a silly thing that a publicity agent had made years before. but just to pick up on karen's point for a second, i think she's onto something. you don't come to a gun fight with a butter knife. that's effectively what romney is doing. debates are about, guess what, debates. that means you come with facts and ideas. and it's hard for me to understand what exactly romney is coming to this debate with. >> 20% across the board tax cut. >> right. which has to mean a tax increase for the middle class. it's the only way to pay for it if you want it to be revenue neutral. he can't make the argument about the economy because as we've said, he'll try to make the argument that obama has been an infective steward. we're now protected to be a positive three. that's a 12% positive swing since he came in as president. and it's just hard to see where romney goes on the economy because obama has got a good answer. he can't go anywhere on taxes because his proposal has got to mean a middle income -- middle class tax increase. he can't
was appointed by president obama in january of this year, they have been moving very rapidly on all three fronts. melissa: yeah. >> unfortunately the net result is they're doing a disservice, not just to the industry that i represent, but to consumers themselves. melissa: why is it a disservice to consumers? >> because, what's going on here is that my clients, my banking clients, my non-banking clients, they won't make a move now without coming to me and other lawyers saying, what will the cfpb think about this? if they want to offer a new product to consumers, very often, low income consumers or people who don't have perfect 800 credit scores. melissa: so they're limiting products they're offering which is not good for low income folks. those are the lowest fees. so those are the people you're going to cut are people are not spending a lot of money. this is why i wanted to do this story. if you go after banks and go after credit card companies and make them pay big settlements to consumers. that money doesn't come out of thin air. they turn around pass that along to who? their customers. the sa
assistance. if we had, when the economy recovers, a higher rate of growth, which it will in a year or so, what's going to happen is nothing happen. tax receipts go up 17%. spending will drop to under 21%. there will still be a substantial deficit, but it will be smaller. president obama's main contribution to this $16 billion debt, which is a trillion dollar debt, a ten-year figure projecting out ten years was the stimulus bill, which is $800 billion, which i believe was a good thing to do. i think that might be bigger without it. it kept people working and paying taxes and off the government payrolls. because it created new jobs. if you look at his annual spending budgets, they are about 2% increase. that's less than the rate of inflation. so, i think that the reason that i believe he'll win re-election is we are beginning to recover. we have a higher rate of job creation since the recession bottomed out in the middle of 2009 than in the previous eight years. and, we are moving in the right direction and the policies he's advocated are going to produce good economic results. if people t
